ERDC Technical Note

This document summarizes the major findings of a workshop entitled ” Regional Sediment Management (RSM) and Engineering With Nature (EWN).” The workshop was held August 28-30, 2012, at the U.S. Army Engineer District, Portland, in Portland, Oregon. The goals of the workshop were to introduce the EWN initiative; identify opportunities and establish collaborations between RSM and EWN; and conduct the annual RSM In-Progress-Review. The workshop was sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE or the Corps) Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) RSM and Dredging Operations Environmental Research (DOER) Programs and further served as a conduit to share technical presentations and lessons learned. The workshop also provided a venue for participants to network, to participate in valuable discussions of relevant experiences, and to generate outcomes that will support the USACE Navigation, Flood Risk Management, and Environmental Restoration missions. Coordinators of the workshop were Linda Lillycrop of the ERDC Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory and Dr. Todd Bridges of the ERDC Environmental Laboratory.
